"S" White With 1


My Creative Team inspiration for the May White With 1 challenge.
This is the 1st layout I created, but after seeing a layout VERY similar with a similar colour palette on Facebook I chose to create another LO for the challenge (Post below).
However I still wanted to share this on my blog.
"S"





 I made this card using the leftover pieces.

After seeing a layout by the very talented Heather Jacob on face book in April,
 I actually felt sick and couldn't believe how similar her layout was to this layout I had created for my Creative Team, WW1 May challenge (sounds silly...and it probably wouldn't have worried me so much if it wasn't a layout I had created for my CT work...people on CT/DT  will know what I mean)
Thanks to Heather for her reassuring words that there are so many scrapbookers today,
 lots of different styles and when there is a palette and evidence
 it is difficult to come up with something really different every time.
...she also said..."Please don't worry".... think I need to remember these 3 little words.
It was just a coincidence that these 2 layouts were created at the same time.

I hope I have inspired you to join in with this months challenge at White With 1.

Thanks for stopping by
and a BIG THANK YOU to all those who take the time to leave 
such beautiful comments on my layouts.

This is truly beautiful!!! Love this layout so much, and it is yours with your own beautiful touches, I agree with Heather "Don't worry"!

It has happened to me too!! I had create a DT layout & couple of days later see a layout that may look similar & I think oh bugger!! & like you...have created again or changed it around!!
I think this is Soooo GORGEOUS... I'm glad you shared this 1!! your Card is SUPER Cute.... x

Janice please don't feel alone with this coincidence, I too had this happen with Cathy Lane from South Africa and she was just as reassuring and encouraging as Heather, we have such a lovely lot of ladies in this craft who make us feel good.
BTW I love the layout a lot.

Weird how it happens - but Heather's right, with certain guidelines it sorta narrows it down...still, good on you for doing another one [sigh, bet that was a bit of a pain:):)]. Gorgeous LO...looks like yours, to be honest, not Heather's....& great idea doing a card too...good luck for next month LOL!!!!!!!

just had the very same thing happen with a bit of a twist regarding the magazine articles I've written. You know the particular one I mean.

not much I can do about it now other than just suck it up as it's already gone thru the printing process.

But I did feel a bit sick when I saw the same topic that I've written about come out in a scrappy magazine this very month and mine is due out next month.

I do love all the banner layers and esp the little turtle trinket.

Heather McMahon said...

What a fabulous layout Janice! And yes, the doubling up thing does happen and there's nothing we can do about it. It just goes to show that you and Heather have great tastes cos I love it!

Kim said...

Your layout and card look Devine, Janice......hey! And these things happen. Thanks for sharing still :)

Helen Wallace said...

Uh oh. I understand Janice. I think it's bound to happen at some point . Heather is a very kind person, so try not to worry too much. Your layout is stunning, I adore the dramatic colours and all the little tags...beautiful. The card is a lovely by product of the situation.
